United States Tennis Association New England is proud to announce it has selected Damariscotta’s Central Lincoln County (CLC) YMCA as its 2018 Community Tennis Association of the Year. CLC YMCA and four other award winners will be recognized at a luncheon at USTA New England’s Tennis Weekend on Nov. 17 at the Boston Marriott Newton.

"USTA New England is grateful to have so many tennis enthusiasts dedicated to growing and developing tennis. To be selected from a field of such worthy nominees is a true honor, and we look forward to celebrating these deserving winners and all they’ve done to give back to the sport,” said USTA New England President and CEO Peter Parrotta.

CLC YMCA is a staple in the Maine tennis community and truly demonstrates it is a youth-first organization. It currently provides tennis to more than 500 kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity to play. From free and discounted lessons and physical education classes to parent/child play, the organization offers ample tennis opportunities for players of all ages and abilities. Junior players never pay for court time and scholarships are available for all tennis programs.

The Community Tennis Association of the Year award goes to the registered USTA Community Tennis Association that made the greatest impact on its community during the past year through programming, events and partnerships. All award winners will also be the New England nominee for their respective national awards.
